I read this a long time ago. But, I still remember it. I really like the four characters, and their knowledge and use of clues to solve the mystery that revolves around their boxcar.

I had an idea of whole stole the boxcar, but how it came to happen was a mystery to me and, nlike the previous two mysteries I have read, the perpetrator was brought to justice.

One of my favorite childhood series. I read over a hundred of them. The first 50 or so were in order; after that I read whatever book I could get my hands on :)
